Cotteswold Dairy Reusable Glass Bottles January 2018
There has been a lot in the press recently about the use of plastic bottles and the waste it creates. At Cotteswold Dairy, they are passionate about reducing this through delivering the milk they produce in Glass Bottles. These are then rinsed and reused on an average of 50 trips!
Since the Dairy started 80 years ago by Harry Workman, they have always delivered milk in the reusable glass bottles and it tastes so much better too! With the help of their own milkmen and independent milkmen approximately 60,000 pints a day are delivered to individuals and families homes over England and Wales.
With the amount of milk consumed by households, this is a very positive way to start reducing plastic consumption. It is also delivered by a milkman which is very convenient too! Not only do they supply milk is glass bottles but also a delicious range of juices. Roseanne McEwan, marketing manager explains ‘even when the supermarkets and bigger milk suppliers started selling Milk in plastic bottles, it is an important identity for us to keep producing milk is Glass Bottles and it remains popular. Many consumers care about the environment and this is just one of the many ways, that we can reduce plastic use. We are bias but milk also tastes so much better out of glass than plastic.
